Royal Holloway Festival of Volunteering


As winners of the Queen’s Award For Volunteering, we have come to expect something special at this leading University, and Phil Simcock, Volunteering Manager, and his team certainly did not disappoint, as some 50 charities gathered around the circus tent on campus to meet students old and new, who are all keen to volunteer. I also met the Surrey Police unit who were explaining the many opportunities to volunteer within the Force, not least by supporting the Volunteer Police Cadets. Vice-Principal Bob O’Keefe (centre) joined Farhan Hay, Positive Action Manager for Surrey Police (left), and Helen Hartley (Surrey Police) to share the details.
